    SACD Ripping using an Oppo or Pioneer? Yes, it's true!

    The old-fashioned way -- play it in whatever way you were intending to do -- play the .iso with J. River or burn a SACD-R and play it on your SACD-R capable BD player or convert it to .dsf files and play them on your .dsf compatible media player. If you don't hear any problems you have a successful rip. In all the reports of SACD ripping on this thread I can not think of an instance where a successful rip was reported to have any defects later.

    You would do well to take your own advice. He was right, by the way. In the current context, interpolation is performed with a filter. He knows this because he's disassembled and analysed the software in several MQA decoders.

    Welcome to CA!
  5. I have a question about scratched sacds. I have a disc that iTunes rips but stutters, XLD won’t complete the ripping process due to errors (both are the redbook layer of course) but my sacd layer iso ripped fine. is it possible that it ripped the iso but the data is compromised? Or if it completes the rip then it is a good rip? I was curious about errors in ripping.... anyone have experience with this? since there doesn’t seem to be an accurate DB like there is for redbook, so how do I know I have an error free rip?
  6. I have not compared Belden to Belden, but I can easily hear the improvements from 5E to 6. Enough so with cheap Home D wire that I am going to order some BJC cat 6. Why not. It's the least expensive piece of anything in my audio chain, and it has shown to make a very audible difference. At least from 5E to 6.

  8. How about a Croc gumbo? Just sub that for alligator - and if a Cajun can wrestle an alligator then surely an Australian can wrestle a slat-water croc

  10. No shootin' involved. First step in any possum recipe is finding a fresh one on the roadside.

  12. Sure. Thanks ..and we have plenty of possums I could take a shot at too...alas we don't have guns lol.
  13. see if you can get @jabbr to do it - he has some optical stuff & a line on a linear low noise IC power supply regulator chip that he may have found in a hospital somewhere
  14. I'll be glad to send you a possum recipe if you want to have a shot at it
  15. Yeah not confident I'd get it right tho.my bet is it's available in Sydney

    I have a good stash of AirPort Express units. Maybe someone should design and create a solution....? A high quality AirPlay DAC....hmmmm.

    Haha yes my apologies .it was a good natured dig at his youthful appearance ....and sometimes his replies.i think he is in his 30s or maybe 40s but only guessing. Still a young age. he is the maintainer of sox. Welcome to the forum!!Cheers
  18. Not that I know of. Maybe time to start thinking like a guy that owns an old sports car and accumulate a stash of Apple TV3's or whatever unit you think has better SQ.

    Better sound. An AirPlay receiver with Toslink optical out, for using a nice external DAC....OR an AirPlay receiver with a great internal DAC. Is there a current component that works perfectly for just AirPlay?

    V: looks bad, feels good What are you doing?

    Plus, I have to say that, regardless of Mansr's age or level of experience, I still feel ethically-bound to offer him the same unsolicited advice.

    Ummm, not far removed from what I've done - over the years. I did a digitally controlled volume IC as roughly as that - it worked, and showed me that those chips are fine to use. You don't get SQ points for tidiness - the routing of the connections can be absolutely critical, and doing something that looks a mess, but gets the job done, is how you find out things ...

    Oh, well, what can I say? I'm new here. <grin>
  24. Trinity DAC can bypass perfectly with LIANOTEC.
  25. Oh silly me. I was looking at your website, and firmware download page. I guess the most official information will be posted to CA about the details of firmware upgrades. Sorry for reading your own website. I guess I'm just another one of those customers who can't be trusted to upgrade firmware properly...

    Before you embarrass yourself any further by drawing conclusions based on erroneous information, you should know that Audiophile Neuroscience's comment about Mansr being 19 was a reference to his youthful appearance, not his actual age.
  27. Were you guys buying the BNC's from the manf. or a distributor?
